really liked it

I really related to this book a lot. I wasn't bullied in high school (much) but I was the fat girl, and this book exposes some of the thoughts that girls like me face. Bullying is a major problem in high school. I often feel the need to ask my students why they are so mean to one another. They can never give me a straight answer. I think this book shows that teenagers often don't see others as real people with real feelings like themselves. They are stuck in the selfish zone of immaturity and don't notice or learn to care about others until they've done damage. Good book. If you are (or have) a teenager, have them read it.
